I love these tiny birds! They flash through the sky, sometimes landing on the pontoon in the baths.

Here’s a photo of one gathering mud to make a nest.

Sweet little creatures.

Welcome Swallow and Sliver Gull

Welcome Swallow and Silver Gull

You go your way and I’ll go mine…

Is that what the Silver Gull is thinking?

Perhaps the tiny Welcome Swallow has the same idea.

Whatever the truth of the matter, here’s a sweet photo of two feathered creatures that seem to love to be near the water.

On the Pontoon...

On the Pontoon…

I like to capture images of different bird species together. Sometimes it’s easy, but more often it isn’t.

Not so long ago my eyes were drawn to the pontoon in the local river baths. On it I saw a couple of Silver Gulls and a pair of Swallows. Being so tiny, the Swallows are hard to see, but they are there!

(This photo is definitely one to enlarge.)
